@Penel that link has a timelapse of him doing a shoot, I don't have a background but will have a go outdoors

Sly the amount of spending on here will even make you proud....2 1DXs and a 5D mkIII !!

Out of curiosity what lighting would you recommend for for a mobile studio with two heads, looking at something with high speed sync, battery powered, wireless control, fairly sturdy and something I would not want to upgrade from. Was thinking of something along these lines http://www.wexphotogra​phic.com …tx-twin-head-kit/p1529872 (external link)

As a system I thing Elinchrom is hard to beat.

I would look at the quadra ranger system at that budget in particular a two Head Used A head kit. 400 watts will be enough is for 80% of situations and is is truly portable.

Or a pair of RX 600's. I would skip the kit as you don't need the triggers and I think you will want to upgrade the stands at some point so you may as well buy them from now. and you are going to want a box that sets u and breaks down easy even not taking into account the light quality and characteristics.

Give me your card, I will shop for you and you can pick them up!

Maybe that is my other thing a consultant shopper...

how does he do it? anyone explain to me in simple terms? I think I've explored this before but can't remember what ? needs a big big light though doesn't it? someone's just asked me if I can do similar...

Yes, good photos there. Think I saw the guy at a show or someone similar- I'm also wanting to do a style of horse photograph similar to Stubbs- think it was be great to take.

Oh yes, just spotted it, I can never have enough info for repairing and servicing!

Not quite sure yet but I'm borrowing a Specialized Roubaix from a shop in Canterbury for the weekend and another local shop is suggesting I get a Raleigh Revenio Carbon...jury's out on that one. There are just too many options. Shame there isn't a Canon one! :lol:

Thanks for the link! I would love the S-Works Di2 model but I'm not sure Mrs G would be too happy with the price tag!
